Alright so here is a question, and out of pure curiosity, what is the absolute BEST computer you can make ignoring all costs.

So i was thinking something along the lines of 4 way SLI with 590's with a Intel I7-3960x and 4 1 TB SSD and 1 32 GB SSD for a boot drive only.

I feel that this would be the absolute most maxed out you can get, obviously it is overkill and costs a massive amount of cash.


So here is my challenge, design the most maxed out computer you can, even if it is overkill, and post the parts and prices so we can compare.
